Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9919592A1] A method of making a fabric Venetian blind comprises helical winding of a narrow, elongated strip (40), which, when properly overlapped and bonded along longitudinal glue lines (42, 44), will form the vanes and front and rear facings of the blind. The strips (40) may be formed of a single, uniform material, or of adjacent, longitudinally extending portions of relatively opaque (34) and relatively translucent fabric (30, 32). An alternative embodiment uses the same winding technique to similarly form a structure of only translucent fabric, but with pockets (110) for subsequent insertion of opaque vanes (114). The disclosed method and structure may also be used to form products for other applications.
